Chemers at the Art and Architecture Tour!

Every year, the Orange County Museum of Art holds the Art and Architecture Tour. This year the tour will include an office building housing many pieces of art selected and custom framed by CHEMERS GALLERY.

The tour will be followed by a "50's themed party with live music, hors d'oeuvres, an exciting raffle for a vacation package to New York and a silent auction".

There are 5 residences and an office building featured in the tour by well known architects including Mark Singer, Michael Reynolds, Brion Jeannette, and Cynthia Childs. They vary from Country French to 50's modern. The interiors of these buildings are stunning.

The office building featured is a contemporary structure in Newport Beach. Inside, it holds over 150 pieces of modern and contemporary artwork, 98% of it was bought and framed at CHEMERS GALLERY.

Some of the artists included in the collection will be present during the tour. These artists include Laddie John Dill, Jonde Northcutt, Nick Capaci, Patrick Marold and Luc Leestemaker.

The Art and Architecture Tour supports education programs at the museum and is a wonderful way to experience Southern California's architectural and artistic advances. For more information on the tour, visit the Orange County Museum of Art website,
